Great organization, with fast delivery even in winter of 2021 all the way across the country. Excellent selections of heirloom veges.

Issima is co-owned by Ed Bowen previously the owner of Opus Plants and Taylor Johnston previously with Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. I have bought from Ed a few times under Opus Plants and Issima. I've done both mail order and in person at the NARGS plant sale. The plant list is always interesting and includes some of their own introductions. I have only gotten healthy, well grown plants from him. He is always friendly and communicative I wouldn't hesitate to order from them.
Here is a picture of my last mail order from them fresh out of the box. Everything was healthy. It includes 3 Ajuga incisa 'Bikun' (Frosted Jade), Helianthus 'Carine', Boehmeria nipononivea 'Glow Light', and Scutellaria incana 'White Sky' which was in bloom.

By LorettaNJ on Jan 26, 2021 5:16 PM, concerning Mail Order Natives:

I ordered from Mail Order Natives 2 seasons ago and will order from them again. The plants were very healthy, reasonably priced and grew well even though they are in Florida and I am in NJ. I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again.


I watched a lady at the gardening section in Barnes & Noble pick up a book, skim through it quickly , put it back, pull out another, skim quickly, put it back... again and again and again. I finally asked her what she was doing... and she said she was looking for an easy-to-understand and easy-to-read book on gardens.

This book is not an easy book. But if you are willing... the chapter on "Garden" is well worth reading. Heinrich Engel presents a western author's take on the Japanese garden that is incredibly valuable and worth examining.

By Australis on Jan 20, 2021 5:58 PM, concerning Orchid Species Plus:

I have found the staff at Orchid Species Plus easy and helpful to deal with. They have a good range of species that can be hard to find elsewhere and I have never had any issues with the health of the plants provided.

By jkporter on Jan 16, 2021 5:33 PM, concerning Faraway Flowers Actuions and Sales:

Ramona has a loyal following and get lily bulbs that are unique and HUGE bulbs. She is busy listing 2-3/day and will have around 100 bulbs of one variety for sale (depending on what she is listing). She sells, Orientals, Trumpets, Asiatics, and Martagons in addition to many different hybrid varieties. She is fair, honest, and has a loyal following. You can ask to join the facebook group just to see what she offers. Then you will be in the same boat as I am....very very difficult to resist these beauties!

By Johannian on Jan 11, 2021 12:02 PM, concerning Burpee (W. Atlee Burpee):

My family have been ordering and buying seeds from Burpee for a very long time. Every time, we get great results. I highly recommend getting your seeds from them.

By bsharf on Jan 8, 2021 4:00 AM, concerning Amaryllis & Caladium Bulb Company:

This is a small Florida company that carries a nice selection of healthy and correctly labeled amaryllis and caladium bulbs. In the event of the rare problem, they have a cheerful and responsive customer service, which can be reached by phone or email. A pleasure doing business with them for many years.

By Sandsock on Jan 1, 2021 12:04 AM, concerning Idlewild Farm, Inc.:

When I contacted them asking about where the tree peonies were from, I received a prompt reply. They also stated as of Oct. 2020 they grow their own tree peonies in the US.

By louisvillefrank on Dec 29, 2020 6:20 PM, concerning Victory Seeds:

Just received seeds. Great variety of hard to find tomato seeds. Personal service on order. I asked if they could delay my order until a specific out of stock tomato seed i wanted became available - they went and found the seed just being processed and added to my order at no charge. Hopeful i will be as lucky as other reviewers and achieve good germination rates.

By jathton on Dec 29, 2020 4:03 PM, concerning THE BROTHER GARDENERS:

It is impossible today to stroll through a garden center or read a seed catalog without feeling the influence of six eighteenth-century men whose unbridled enthusiasm for the natural world revolutionized the way people would forever after relate to plants and gardening.
...Joseph Banks, John Bartram, Peter Collinson, Carl Linnaeus, Phillip Miller and Daniel Solander were independently pursuing individual passions for new garden plants and botanical knowledge, a mutual obsession that eventually brought them into contact with each other.
This is their story and that of the beginning of gardening in America.
